FRESNO — Global comedy phenomenon Jeff Dunham adds new summer dates to his blockbuster “Passively Aggressive” international tour -- including a stop in the Valley.
The tour has been filling arenas across North America and Canada treating fans to more of his delightfully twisted cohorts, Peanut, Walter, José Jalapeño, Bubba J and Achmed the Dead Terrorist. In addition, Jeff will be introducing two brand new, never seen-on-TV characters, who give their own takes on the current and highly volatile American political scene. Newly announced dates on sale now at www.jeffdunham.com.
Dunham will perform at 3 p.m. Sunday, April 28 at the Save Mart Center in Fresno. Tickets are $45.50. Call 800-745-3000 or visit Dunham's website for tickets.
The Save Mart Center is located at 2650 E. Shaw Ave. Fresno.
The Texas native recently announced the taping of his new Netflix original special in his hometown of Dallas. Dunham’s show at the American Airlines Center on June 22 sold out immediately. To accommodate the massive demand, a second performance on June 21 has been added. The taping will be his second Netflix Originals special, and the eighth in his string of record-breaking stand up television events. In addition to the Netflix taping, Jeff is also taping a new in-depth, A&E two hour biography special set to premiere later this year.
Dunham has built an entertainment empire over years of non-stop touring and performance innovation. With 10 million followers on Facebook and 2 million YouTube subscribers amassing well over a billion views, the comedian/ventriloquist has carved out his own unique space in the comedy world. His accomplishments have led to record-breaking viewership with his standup specials on NBC, Netflix and Comedy Central. His arena-packing power has put him on par with major music acts like Kendrick Lamar and Bruno Mars.
Jeff filmed his 2017 stand-up special “Relative Disaster” in Ireland and features the comic along with his ill-behaved posse of characters, who skewer Dunham and his complicated family life, plus current topics of the day. Relative Disaster is now streaming on Netflix.
